Southern Asia Leadership Institute is one of India’s fastest-growing leadership training and teaching institutions. The institute was established out of a missionary vision the Lord granted to its founder Dr. Abraham Mathew. SALI is committed to equipping men and women to be the next generation of Christlike, transformational leaders who will emulate Christ in every area of their lives, who will be His authentic witnesses, and who will effectively serve society in diverse spheres.
As an institution, we subscribe to the Full Gospel Theology where individuals from leading indigenous Pentecostal and Evangelical Churches teach and learn. SALI is unique in its vision as we believe worship is the key to missions.
The institute is under the governance of Southern Asia Leadership Religious and Charitable Trust. The Board of Trustees and the Advisory Board are made up of individuals and institutional members who subscribe to SALI’s vision, with expertise in the field of education and missions, and help establish institutional policies that the Administrative Council implements.
